SACTIONAL" OR "USE" IMMUNITY.
  (A)  "TRANSACTIONAL  IMMUNITY."  A  person who has been a witness in a
legal proceeding, and who cannot, except as otherwise provided  in  this
subdivision,  be convicted of any offense or subjected to any penalty or

PROCEEDING, AND NEITHER THE EVIDENCE  GIVEN  BY  THAT  WITNESS  NOR  ANY

SITION OF ANY PENALTY OR FORFEITURE POSSESSES "USE IMMUNITY".
  (C) A person who possesses [such] TRANSACTIONAL IMMUNITY OR USE  immu-
nity  may  nevertheless  be  convicted  of perjury as a result of having
given false testimony in such legal proceeding, and may be convicted  of
or  adjudged in contempt as a result of having contumaciously refused to
give evidence therein, AND THE EVIDENCE  GIVEN  BY  THE  PERSON  AT  THE

defendant either at the time or place of the commission of  the  offense

mony  would  not be admissible upon the prospective trial of such charge
owing to an improperly made previous identification of the defendant  by

                            PUBLIC FINANCING
SECTION 14-200.   LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENT.
        14-200-A. DEFINITIONS.
        14-201.   REPORTING REQUIREMENTS.
        14-202.   CONTRIBUTIONS.
        14-203.   PROOF OF COMPLIANCE.
        14-204.   ELIGIBILITY.
        14-205.   LIMITS ON PUBLIC FINANCING.

        14-213.   SEVERABILITY.

S. 6355                            44                            A. 8555

  S 14-200. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENT.  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT
REFORM OF NEW YORK STATE'S CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM IS CRUCIAL TO IMPROV-
ING PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN THE STATE'S DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES AND CONTINUING
TO ENSURE A GOVERNMENT THAT IS ACCOUNTABLE TO ALL OF THE VOTERS  OF  THE
STATE  REGARDLESS  OF WEALTH OR POSITION. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT NEW
YORK'S CURRENT SYSTEM OF CAMPAIGN FINANCE, WITH ITS LARGE  CONTRIBUTIONS
TO CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE AND PARTY COMMITTEES, HAS CREATED THE POTENTIAL
FOR  AND  THE  APPEARANCE OF CORRUPTION.   THE LEGISLATURE FURTHER FINDS
THAT, WHETHER OR NOT THIS SYSTEM CREATES ACTUAL CORRUPTION, THE  APPEAR-
ANCE  OF  SUCH  CORRUPTION CAN GIVE RISE TO A DISTRUST IN GOVERNMENT AND
CITIZEN APATHY THAT UNDERMINE THE DEMOCRATIC OPERATION OF THE  POLITICAL
PROCESS.
  THE LEGISLATURE ALSO FINDS THAT THE HIGH COST OF RUNNING FOR OFFICE IN
NEW  YORK  DISCOURAGES  QUALIFIED CANDIDATES FROM RUNNING FOR OFFICE AND
CREATES AN ELECTORAL SYSTEM THAT ENCOURAGES CANDIDATES TO SPEND TOO MUCH
TIME RAISING MONEY RATHER THAN ATTENDING TO THE DUTIES OF THEIR  OFFICE,
REPRESENTING  THE  NEEDS  OF  THEIR CONSTITUENTS, AND COMMUNICATING WITH
VOTERS.
  THE LEGISLATURE AMENDS THIS CHAPTER CREATING A NEW TITLE TWO TO  ARTI-
CLE  FOURTEEN  OF  THIS CHAPTER TO REDUCE THE POSSIBILITY AND APPEARANCE
THAT SPECIAL INTERESTS EXERCISE UNDUE INFLUENCE OVER STATE OFFICIALS; TO
INCREASE THE ACTUAL AND APPARENT RESPONSIVENESS OF ELECTED OFFICIALS  TO
ALL  VOTERS; TO ENCOURAGE QUALIFIED CANDIDATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE; AND TO
REDUCE THE PRESSURE ON CANDIDATES TO SPEND LARGE AMOUNTS OF TIME RAISING
LARGE CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.
  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT THIS ARTICLE'S LIMITATIONS ON CONTRIBUTIONS
FURTHER  THE  GOVERNMENT'S  INTEREST  IN  REDUCING  REAL  AND   APPARENT
CORRUPTION  AND  IN  BUILDING TRUST IN GOVERNMENT. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS
THAT THE CONTRIBUTION LEVELS ARE SUFFICIENTLY HIGH TO  ALLOW  CANDIDATES
AND  POLITICAL PARTIES TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO RUN EFFECTIVE CAMPAIGNS.
IN ADDITION, THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT GRADUATED  CONTRIBUTION  LIMITA-
TIONS REFLECT THE CAMPAIGN NEEDS OF CANDIDATES FOR DIFFERENT OFFICES.
  THE LEGISLATURE ALSO FINDS THAT THE SYSTEM OF VOLUNTARY PUBLIC FINANC-
ING  FURTHERS  THE GOVERNMENT'S INTEREST IN ENCOURAGING QUALIFIED CANDI-
DATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT THE VOLUNTARY PUBLIC
FUNDING PROGRAM WILL ENLARGE THE  PUBLIC  DEBATE  AND  INCREASE  PARTIC-
IPATION  IN  THE  DEMOCRATIC PROCESS. IN ADDITION, THE LEGISLATURE FINDS
THAT THE VOLUNTARY EXPENDITURE LIMITATIONS  AND  MATCHING  FUND  PROGRAM
REDUCE  THE BURDEN ON CANDIDATES AND OFFICEHOLDERS TO SPEND TIME RAISING
MONEY FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.
  THEREFORE, THE LEGISLATURE DECLARES THAT THESE AMENDMENTS FURTHER  THE
IMPORTANT  AND  VALID  GOVERNMENT  INTERESTS  OF  REDUCING VOTER APATHY,
BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT, REDUCING THE REALITY  AND  APPEARANCE
OF  CORRUPTION,  AND ENCOURAGING QUALIFIED CANDIDATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE,
WHILE REDUCING CANDIDATES' AND OFFICEHOLDERS' FUNDRAISING BURDENS.

issued by the dormitory authority on  and  after  July  first,  nineteen
hundred  eighty-eight  for  state university educational facilities will
exceed ten billion [four] NINE hundred [twenty-two]  THIRTY-TWO  million
dollars;  provided,  however, that bonds issued or to be issued shall be
excluded from such limitation if: (1) such bonds are  issued  to  refund
state  university  construction  bonds and state university construction
notes previously issued by the housing finance agency; or (2) such bonds

basis,  such  issuance will be deemed to have met the present value test
noted above. For purposes of this subdivision, the present value of  the

from  the  payment  dates  thereof to the date of issue of the refunding
bonds to the purchase price of the refunding bonds,  including  interest
accrued  thereon  prior  to  the  issuance thereof. The maturity of such
bonds, other than bonds issued to refund outstanding  bonds,  shall  not
exceed  the  weighted  average  economic life, as certified by the state
university construction fund, of the facilities in connection with which
the bonds are issued, and in any case not  later  than  the  earlier  of
thirty  years  or  the  expiration of the term of any lease, sublease or
other agreement relating  thereto;  provided  that  no  note,  including
renewals  thereof,  shall mature later than five years after the date of
issuance of such note. The legislature reserves the right  to  amend  or
repeal  such  limit, and the state of New York, the dormitory authority,

hereby  authorized  to  issue  bonds,  notes and other obligations in an
aggregate principal amount not  to  exceed  four  hundred  [twenty-nine]
SIXTY-FIVE  million  [five]  THREE hundred [fifteen] SIXTY-FIVE thousand
dollars [($429,515,000)] ($465,365,000), which  authorization  increases

S. 6355                            78                            A. 8555

include  all bonds, notes and other obligations issued pursuant to chap-
ter 211 of the laws of 1990, as amended or supplemented. The proceeds of
such bonds, notes or other obligations shall be paid to the  state,  for
deposit  in the youth facilities improvement fund, to pay for all or any
portion of the amount or amounts paid by the state  from  appropriations
or  reappropriations  made to the office of children and family services
from the youth facilities improvement fund  for  capital  projects.  The
aggregate  amount of bonds, notes and other obligations authorized to be
issued pursuant to this section shall  exclude  bonds,  notes  or  other
obligations  issued  to  refund or otherwise repay bonds, notes or other
obligations theretofore issued, the proceeds of which were paid  to  the
state  for  all  or  a portion of the amounts expended by the state from

the aggregate debt service of the refunding or repayment bonds, notes or
other obligations to be issued shall not exceed the present value of the
aggregate debt service of the bonds, notes or other obligations so to be
refunded or repaid. For the purposes hereof, the present  value  of  the
aggregate  debt  service  of  the refunding or repayment bonds, notes or
other obligations and of the aggregate debt service of the bonds,  notes
or  other  obligations  so  refunded  or  repaid, shall be calculated by
utilizing the effective interest rate  of  the  refunding  or  repayment
bonds,  notes  or other obligations, which shall be that rate arrived at
by doubling the semi-annual  interest  rate  (compounded  semi-annually)
necessary  to  discount  the  debt  service payments on the refunding or
repayment bonds, notes or other obligations from the payment dates ther-
eof to the date of issue of the refunding or repayment bonds,  notes  or
other  obligations  and  to  the  price  bid including estimated accrued

[No bonds shall be issued for the repayment  of  any  new  appropriation
enacted  after  March  thirty-first, two thousand thirteen for hazardous

authorized  to  be  issued  by  this section shall be exclusive of bonds
issued to fund any debt service reserve funds, pay costs of issuance  of
such bonds, and bonds or notes issued to refund or otherwise repay bonds
or  notes  previously  issued.  Such  bonds and notes of the corporation
shall not be a debt of the state, and the  state  shall  not  be  liable
thereon,  nor  shall  they  be payable out of any funds other than those
appropriated by this state to  the  corporation  for  debt  service  and
related  expenses pursuant to any service contracts executed pursuant to

S. 6355                            79                            A. 8555

on the face thereof a statement to such effect.

sufficient funds to  the  facilities  development  corporation,  or  any
successor agency, for the financing or refinancing of or for the design,
construction, acquisition, reconstruction, rehabilitation or improvement

ment  bonds and mental health services improvement notes issued for such
purposes, the establishment of reserves to secure such bonds and  notes,
the  cost  or  premium  of  bond insurance or the costs of any financial
mechanisms which may be used to reduce the debt service  that  would  be
payable  by the agency on its mental health services facilities improve-
ment bonds and notes and all other expenditures of the  agency  incident
to  and  necessary or convenient to providing the facilities development
corporation, or any successor agency, with funds for  the  financing  or
refinancing of or for any such design, construction, acquisition, recon-
struction, rehabilitation or improvement and for the refunding of mental

ties  improvement  bonds  and mental health facilities improvement notes
may be greater than seven billion [three] FOUR hundred [sixty-six] THIR-
TY-FIVE million [six] EIGHT hundred FIFTEEN thousand  dollars  only  if,
except  as  hereinafter  provided with respect to mental health services
facilities bonds and mental health services facilities notes  issued  to
refund mental hygiene improvement bonds authorized to be issued pursuant
to  the  provisions  of section 47-b of the private housing finance law,
the present value of the aggregate debt  service  of  the  refunding  or
repayment  bonds  to be issued shall not exceed the present value of the
aggregate debt service of the  bonds  to  be  refunded  or  repaid.  For
purposes hereof, the present values of the aggregate debt service of the
refunding  or  repayment  bonds,  notes  or other obligations and of the
aggregate debt service of the  bonds,  notes  or  other  obligations  so
refunded  or  repaid,  shall  be  calculated  by utilizing the effective

the projects for which the bonds are issued, and in any case  shall  not
exceed  thirty  years  and the maximum maturity of notes or any renewals
thereof shall not exceed five years from the date of the original  issue
of such notes. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, the agen-
cy  shall have the power and is hereby authorized to issue mental health
services facilities improvement  bonds  and/or  mental  health  services
facilities  improvement  notes  to  refund  outstanding  mental  hygiene
improvement bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions  of
section  47-b of the private housing finance law and the amount of bonds
issued or outstanding for  such  purposes  shall  not  be  included  for
purposes  of  determining  the  amount  of bonds issued pursuant to this
section. The director of the budget shall allocate the aggregate princi-
pal authorized to be issued by the agency among  the  office  of  mental
health, office [of mental retardation and] FOR PEOPLE WITH developmental

in  consultation with their respective commissioners to finance bondable

of  this  act  shall  expire  March  31,  2015, when upon such date, the
provisions of such sections shall be deemed repealed.

S  50.10  Compulsion  of  evidence  by offer of immunity; definitions of
            terms.

  1.  "Immunity."  BASED UPON THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE LEGAL PROCEEDING
IN WHICH A PERSON GIVES EVIDENCE, SUCH PERSON MAY RECEIVE EITHER  "TRAN-
SACTIONAL" OR "USE" IMMUNITY.
  (A)  "TRANSACTIONAL  IMMUNITY."  A  person who has been a witness in a
legal proceeding, and who cannot, except as otherwise provided  in  this
subdivision,  be convicted of any offense or subjected to any penalty or
forfeiture for or  on  account  of  any  transaction,  matter  or  thing
concerning which he gave evidence therein, possesses ["immunity"] "TRAN-
SACTIONAL IMMUNITY" from any such conviction, penalty or forfeiture.
  (B)  "USE  IMMUNITY."    A  PERSON  WHO  HAS BEEN A WITNESS IN A LEGAL
PROCEEDING, AND NEITHER THE EVIDENCE  GIVEN  BY  THAT  WITNESS  NOR  ANY
EVIDENCE  DERIVED  DIRECTLY  OR INDIRECTLY THEREFROM MAY BE USED AGAINST
THE WITNESS IN THE SAME OR ANY OTHER CRIMINAL PROCEEDING OR IN THE IMPO-
SITION OF ANY PENALTY OR FORFEITURE POSSESSES "USE IMMUNITY".
  (C) A person who possesses [such] TRANSACTIONAL IMMUNITY OR USE  immu-
nity  may  nevertheless  be  convicted  of perjury as a result of having
given false testimony in such legal proceeding, and may be convicted  of
or  adjudged in contempt as a result of having contumaciously refused to
give evidence therein, AND THE EVIDENCE  GIVEN  BY  THE  PERSON  AT  THE
PROCEEDING  AT  WHICH THE PERSON POSSESSED EITHER TRANSACTIONAL IMMUNITY
OR USE IMMUNITY MAY BE USED AGAINST SUCH PERSON IN ANY SUCH  PROSECUTION
FOR PERJURY OR PROSECUTION OR JUDGMENT FOR CONTEMPT.
  2.  "Legal  proceeding"  means  a proceeding in or before any court or
grand jury, or before any body, agency or person authorized  by  law  to

istered.

IN  PUBLIC OFFICE BY A PUBLIC SERVANT, WHETHER CRIMINAL OR OTHERWISE, OR
ANY  FRAUD  UPON  THE  STATE,  A POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THE STATE OR A
GOVERNMENTAL INSTRUMENTALITY WITHIN THE STATE SUCH WITNESS RECEIVES  USE
IMMUNITY.  A  WITNESS  IN A LEGAL PROCEEDING INVOLVING ANY OTHER SUBJECT
MATTER RECEIVES TRANSACTIONAL IMMUNITY. IN EITHER CASE, SUCH witness  is
not  deprived  of such immunity because such competent authority did not
comply with statutory provisions requiring notice to a specified  public
servant of intention to confer immunity.

procedure law is amended, and a new subdivision 4 is added  to  read  as

DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FROM THE EVIDENCE AS TO WHICH SUCH IMMUNITY  WAS
CONFERRED.
  S  6.  Subdivision  2 of section 190.40 of the criminal procedure law,
paragraph (c) as added by chapter 454 of the laws of 1975, is amended to

UPON THE STATE, A POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THE STATE OR  A  GOVERNMENTAL
INSTRUMENTALITY  WITHIN THE STATE receives USE immunity.  A WITNESS IN A
GRAND JURY PROCEEDING INVOLVING ANY OTHER SUBJECT MATTER RECEIVES  TRAN-
SACTIONAL  IMMUNITY. IN EITHER CASE, SUCH WITNESS RECEIVES SUCH IMMUNITY
unless:
  (a)   He OR SHE has  effectively  waived  such  immunity  pursuant  to

  (b)  Such evidence is not responsive to any inquiry and is gratuitous-
ly  given  or  volunteered  by the witness with knowledge that it is not

records or other physical evidence  of  an  enterprise,  as  defined  in
subdivision  one  of  section 175.00 of the penal law, the production of
which is required by a subpoena duces tecum, and the  witness  does  not
possess  a  privilege  against  self-incrimination  with  respect to the
production of such evidence.  Any further evidence given by the  witness
entitles  the  witness  to immunity except as provided in [subparagraph]
PARAGRAPHS (a) and (b) of this subdivision.
  S 7. Paragraph (d) of subdivision 1 of section 210.20 of the  criminal
procedure law is amended to read as follows:

the offense charged, pursuant to section 50.20 or 190.40; or
  S  7-a.  Section  210.35  of  the criminal procedure law is amended by

nal action, OR (C) CLAIMS THAT EVIDENCE AS TO THE USE OF WHICH HE OR SHE
POSSESSES  IMMUNITY,  AS  DEFINED IN PARAGRAPH (B) OF SUBDIVISION ONE OF
SECTION 50.10 OF THIS CHAPTER, MAY BE OFFERED AGAINST HIM IN A  CRIMINAL
ACTION,  a  court  may,  under circumstances prescribed in this article,

it:
  6.    Consists  of potential testimony regarding an observation of the
defendant either at the time or place of the commission of  the  offense
or upon some other occasion relevant to the case, which potential testi-
mony  would  not be admissible upon the prospective trial of such charge
owing to an improperly made previous identification of the defendant  by
the prospective witness[.]; OR
  7. Consists of information obtained by means of a pen register or trap
and  trace  device  installed  or used in violation of the provisions of
article seven hundred five of this chapter[.]; OR

as  amended  by  chapter  39  of the laws of 1975, is amended to read as
follows:

        14-200-A. DEFINITIONS.

        14-213.   SEVERABILITY.
  S 14-200. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENT.  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT
REFORM OF NEW YORK STATE'S CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM IS CRUCIAL TO IMPROV-
ING PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN THE STATE'S DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES AND CONTINUING
TO ENSURE A GOVERNMENT THAT IS ACCOUNTABLE TO ALL OF THE VOTERS  OF  THE
STATE  REGARDLESS  OF WEALTH OR POSITION. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT NEW
YORK'S CURRENT SYSTEM OF CAMPAIGN FINANCE, WITH ITS LARGE  CONTRIBUTIONS
TO CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE AND PARTY COMMITTEES, HAS CREATED THE POTENTIAL
FOR  AND  THE  APPEARANCE OF CORRUPTION.   THE LEGISLATURE FURTHER FINDS
THAT, WHETHER OR NOT THIS SYSTEM CREATES ACTUAL CORRUPTION, THE  APPEAR-
ANCE  OF  SUCH  CORRUPTION CAN GIVE RISE TO A DISTRUST IN GOVERNMENT AND
CITIZEN APATHY THAT UNDERMINE THE DEMOCRATIC OPERATION OF THE  POLITICAL
PROCESS.
  THE LEGISLATURE ALSO FINDS THAT THE HIGH COST OF RUNNING FOR OFFICE IN
NEW  YORK  DISCOURAGES  QUALIFIED CANDIDATES FROM RUNNING FOR OFFICE AND
CREATES AN ELECTORAL SYSTEM THAT ENCOURAGES CANDIDATES TO SPEND TOO MUCH
TIME RAISING MONEY RATHER THAN ATTENDING TO THE DUTIES OF THEIR  OFFICE,
REPRESENTING  THE  NEEDS  OF  THEIR CONSTITUENTS, AND COMMUNICATING WITH
VOTERS.
  THE LEGISLATURE AMENDS THIS CHAPTER CREATING A NEW TITLE TWO TO  ARTI-
CLE  FOURTEEN  OF  THIS CHAPTER TO REDUCE THE POSSIBILITY AND APPEARANCE
THAT SPECIAL INTERESTS EXERCISE UNDUE INFLUENCE OVER STATE OFFICIALS; TO
INCREASE THE ACTUAL AND APPARENT RESPONSIVENESS OF ELECTED OFFICIALS  TO
ALL  VOTERS; TO ENCOURAGE QUALIFIED CANDIDATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE; AND TO
REDUCE THE PRESSURE ON CANDIDATES TO SPEND LARGE AMOUNTS OF TIME RAISING
LARGE CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.
  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT THIS ARTICLE'S LIMITATIONS ON CONTRIBUTIONS
FURTHER  THE  GOVERNMENT'S  INTEREST  IN  REDUCING  REAL  AND   APPARENT
CORRUPTION  AND  IN  BUILDING TRUST IN GOVERNMENT. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS
THAT THE CONTRIBUTION LEVELS ARE SUFFICIENTLY HIGH TO  ALLOW  CANDIDATES
AND  POLITICAL PARTIES TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO RUN EFFECTIVE CAMPAIGNS.
IN ADDITION, THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT GRADUATED  CONTRIBUTION  LIMITA-
TIONS REFLECT THE CAMPAIGN NEEDS OF CANDIDATES FOR DIFFERENT OFFICES.
  THE LEGISLATURE ALSO FINDS THAT THE SYSTEM OF VOLUNTARY PUBLIC FINANC-
ING  FURTHERS  THE GOVERNMENT'S INTEREST IN ENCOURAGING QUALIFIED CANDI-
DATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT THE VOLUNTARY PUBLIC
FUNDING PROGRAM WILL ENLARGE THE  PUBLIC  DEBATE  AND  INCREASE  PARTIC-
IPATION  IN  THE  DEMOCRATIC PROCESS. IN ADDITION, THE LEGISLATURE FINDS
THAT THE VOLUNTARY EXPENDITURE LIMITATIONS  AND  MATCHING  FUND  PROGRAM
REDUCE  THE BURDEN ON CANDIDATES AND OFFICEHOLDERS TO SPEND TIME RAISING
MONEY FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.
  THEREFORE, THE LEGISLATURE DECLARES THAT THESE AMENDMENTS FURTHER  THE
IMPORTANT  AND  VALID  GOVERNMENT  INTERESTS  OF  REDUCING VOTER APATHY,
BUILDING CONFIDENCE IN GOVERNMENT, REDUCING THE REALITY  AND  APPEARANCE
OF  CORRUPTION,  AND ENCOURAGING QUALIFIED CANDIDATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE,
WHILE REDUCING CANDIDATES' AND OFFICEHOLDERS' FUNDRAISING BURDENS.

state to pay the amount therein provided shall not constitute a debt  of
the  state  within  the  meaning  of  any  constitutional  or  statutory
provision and shall be deemed executory only to  the  extent  of  monies
available  and  that  no liability shall be incurred by the state beyond

other  obligations issued pursuant to chapter 56 of the laws of 1983, as
amended or supplemented. The proceeds of  such  bonds,  notes  or  other
obligations  shall be paid to the state, for deposit in the correctional
facilities capital improvement fund to pay for all or any portion of the
amount  or  amounts paid by the state from appropriations or reappropri-
ations made to the department of corrections and  community  supervision

by  doubling  the  semi-annual  interest rate (compounded semi-annually)
necessary to discount the debt service  payments  on  the  refunding  or
repayment bonds, notes or other obligations from the payment dates ther-
eof  to  the date of issue of the refunding or repayment bonds, notes or
other obligations and to  the  price  bid  including  estimated  accrued
interest  or  proceeds  received  by the corporation including estimated
accrued interest from the sale thereof.

the laws of 2013, is amended to read as follows:
  (c) Subject to the provisions of chapter fifty-nine of the laws of two
thousand, the dormitory authority shall not issue any  bonds  for  state
university  educational  facilities  purposes if the principal amount of
bonds to be issued when added to the aggregate principal amount of bonds
issued by the dormitory authority on  and  after  July  first,  nineteen
hundred  eighty-eight  for  state university educational facilities will
exceed ten billion [four] NINE hundred [twenty-two]  THIRTY-TWO  million
dollars;  provided,  however, that bonds issued or to be issued shall be
excluded from such limitation if: (1) such bonds are  issued  to  refund
state  university  construction  bonds and state university construction
notes previously issued by the housing finance agency; or (2) such bonds
are issued to refund bonds of the authority or other obligations  issued
for  state  university  educational  facilities purposes and the present
value of the aggregate debt service on  the  refunding  bonds  does  not
exceed  the  present  value  of  the aggregate debt service on the bonds
refunded thereby; provided,  further  that  upon  certification  by  the
director  of  the  budget  that the issuance of refunding bonds or other
obligations issued between April first, nineteen hundred ninety-two  and
March  thirty-first,  nineteen  hundred  ninety-three will generate long
term economic benefits to the state, as  assessed  on  a  present  value
basis,  such  issuance will be deemed to have met the present value test
noted above. For purposes of this subdivision, the present value of  the
aggregate  debt  service  of  the refunding bonds and the aggregate debt
service of the bonds refunded, shall be calculated by utilizing the true
interest cost of the refunding bonds, which shall be that  rate  arrived
at  by doubling the semi-annual interest rate (compounded semi-annually)
necessary to discount the debt service payments on the  refunding  bonds
from  the  payment  dates  thereof to the date of issue of the refunding
bonds to the purchase price of the refunding bonds,  including  interest
accrued  thereon  prior  to  the  issuance thereof. The maturity of such
bonds, other than bonds issued to refund outstanding  bonds,  shall  not
exceed  the  weighted  average  economic life, as certified by the state
university construction fund, of the facilities in connection with which

the bonds are issued, and in any case not  later  than  the  earlier  of
thirty  years  or  the  expiration of the term of any lease, sublease or
other agreement relating  thereto;  provided  that  no  note,  including
renewals  thereof,  shall mature later than five years after the date of
issuance of such note. The legislature reserves the right  to  amend  or
repeal  such  limit, and the state of New York, the dormitory authority,
the state university of New York, and the state university  construction
fund are prohibited from covenanting or making any other agreements with
or  for  the  benefit  of bondholders which might in any way affect such
right.

the laws of 2013, is amended to read as follows:
  (c) Subject to the provisions of chapter fifty-nine of the laws of two
thousand, (i) the dormitory authority shall  not  deliver  a  series  of
bonds for city university community college facilities, except to refund
or  to  be substituted for or in lieu of other bonds in relation to city
university community college facilities pursuant to a resolution of  the
dormitory  authority adopted before July first, nineteen hundred eighty-
five or any resolution supplemental thereto, if the principal amount  of
bonds  so  to  be  issued  when  added to all principal amounts of bonds
previously issued by the dormitory authority for city university  commu-
nity  college  facilities, except to refund or to be substituted in lieu
of other bonds in relation to city university community college  facili-
ties will exceed the sum of four hundred twenty-five million dollars and
(ii)  the dormitory authority shall not deliver a series of bonds issued
for city university facilities, including community college  facilities,
pursuant  to a resolution of the dormitory authority adopted on or after
July first, nineteen hundred eighty-five, except  to  refund  or  to  be
substituted for or in lieu of other bonds in relation to city university
facilities  and except for bonds issued pursuant to a resolution supple-
mental to a resolution of the dormitory authority adopted prior to  July
first, nineteen hundred eighty-five, if the principal amount of bonds so
to  be  issued  when  added  to the principal amount of bonds previously
issued pursuant to any such resolution, except bonds issued to refund or
to be substituted for or in lieu of other  bonds  in  relation  to  city
university  facilities,  will  exceed  [six]  SEVEN  billion [eight] ONE
hundred   [fifty-three]   TWENTY-SIX   million   [two]   EIGHT   hundred
TWENTY-EIGHT  thousand  dollars.   The legislature reserves the right to
amend or repeal such limit, and the state of  New  York,  the  dormitory
authority,  the city university, and the fund are prohibited from coven-
anting or making any other agreements with or for the benefit  of  bond-
holders which might in any way affect such right.

aggregate  debt  service  of  the  bonds,  notes or other obligations so
refunded or repaid, shall  be  calculated  by  utilizing  the  effective
interest  rate of the refunding or repayment bonds, notes or other obli-
gations, which shall be that rate arrived at by doubling the semi-annual
interest  rate (compounded semi-annually) necessary to discount the debt
service payments on the refunding or repayment  bonds,  notes  or  other
obligations  from  the payment dates thereof to the date of issue of the
refunding or repayment bonds, notes or  other  obligations  and  to  the
price  bid  including estimated accrued interest or proceeds received by

services facilities improvement  bonds  and/or  mental  health  services
facilities  improvement  notes  to  refund  outstanding  mental  hygiene
improvement bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions  of
section  47-b of the private housing finance law and the amount of bonds
issued or outstanding for  such  purposes  shall  not  be  included  for
purposes  of  determining  the  amount  of bonds issued pursuant to this
section. The director of the budget shall allocate the aggregate princi-
pal authorized to be issued by the agency among  the  office  of  mental
health, office [of mental retardation and] FOR PEOPLE WITH developmental
disabilities, and the office of alcoholism and substance abuse services,
in  consultation with their respective commissioners to finance bondable
appropriations previously approved by the legislature.
  S 47. This act shall take effect immediately and shall  be  deemed  to
have  been in full force and effect on and after April 1, 2014; provided
that sections one through nine, and sections thirteen  through  nineteen
of  this  act  shall  expire  March  31,  2015, when upon such date, the
provisions of such sections shall be deemed repealed.

IN WHICH A PERSON GIVES EVIDENCE, SUCH PERSON MAY RECEIVE EITHER  "TRAN-
SACTIONAL" OR "USE" IMMUNITY.
  (A)  "TRANSACTIONAL  IMMUNITY."  A  person who has been a witness in a
legal proceeding, and who cannot, except as otherwise provided  in  this
subdivision,  be convicted of any offense or subjected to any penalty or
forfeiture for or  on  account  of  any  transaction,  matter  or  thing
concerning which he gave evidence therein, possesses ["immunity"] "TRAN-
SACTIONAL IMMUNITY" from any such conviction, penalty or forfeiture.
  (B)  "USE  IMMUNITY."    A  PERSON  WHO  HAS BEEN A WITNESS IN A LEGAL
PROCEEDING, AND NEITHER THE EVIDENCE  GIVEN  BY  THAT  WITNESS  NOR  ANY
EVIDENCE  DERIVED  DIRECTLY  OR INDIRECTLY THEREFROM MAY BE USED AGAINST

SITION OF ANY PENALTY OR FORFEITURE POSSESSES "USE IMMUNITY".

nity  may  nevertheless  be  convicted  of perjury as a result of having
given false testimony in such legal proceeding, and may be convicted  of
or  adjudged in contempt as a result of having contumaciously refused to
give evidence therein, AND THE EVIDENCE  GIVEN  BY  THE  PERSON  AT  THE
PROCEEDING  AT  WHICH THE PERSON POSSESSED EITHER TRANSACTIONAL IMMUNITY
OR USE IMMUNITY MAY BE USED AGAINST SUCH PERSON IN ANY SUCH  PROSECUTION
FOR PERJURY OR PROSECUTION OR JUDGMENT FOR CONTEMPT.

istered.

IN PUBLIC OFFICE BY A PUBLIC SERVANT, WHETHER CRIMINAL OR OTHERWISE,  OR
ANY  FRAUD  UPON  THE  STATE,  A POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THE STATE OR A
GOVERNMENTAL INSTRUMENTALITY WITHIN THE STATE SUCH WITNESS RECEIVES  USE
IMMUNITY.  A  WITNESS  IN A LEGAL PROCEEDING INVOLVING ANY OTHER SUBJECT
MATTER RECEIVES TRANSACTIONAL IMMUNITY. IN EITHER CASE, SUCH witness  is
not  deprived  of such immunity because such competent authority did not
comply with statutory provisions requiring notice to a specified  public
servant of intention to confer immunity.

procedure law is amended, and a new subdivision 4 is added  to  read  as

TION OR MISDEMEANOR COMPLAINT ARE BASED ON  EVIDENCE  PROTECTED  BY  USE
IMMUNITY AS DEFINED IN PARAGRAPH (B) OF SUBDIVISION ONE OF SECTION 50.10
OF THIS CHAPTER; or
  4. WHERE THE DEFENDANT ESTABLISHES IN HIS OR HER MOTION THAT USE IMMU-
NITY HAS BEEN CONFERRED UPON HIM OR HER, THE PEOPLE MUST THEN ESTABLISH,

DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY, FROM THE EVIDENCE AS TO WHICH SUCH IMMUNITY  WAS
CONFERRED.
  S  6.  Subdivision  2 of section 190.40 of the criminal procedure law,
paragraph (c) as added by chapter 454 of the laws of 1975, is amended to
read as follows:
  2.  A witness who gives evidence in a grand jury proceeding INVOLVING,

OFFICE  BY A PUBLIC SERVANT, WHETHER CRIMINAL OR OTHERWISE, OR ANY FRAUD
UPON THE STATE, A POLITICAL SUBDIVISION OF THE STATE OR  A  GOVERNMENTAL
INSTRUMENTALITY  WITHIN THE STATE receives USE immunity.  A WITNESS IN A
GRAND JURY PROCEEDING INVOLVING ANY OTHER SUBJECT MATTER RECEIVES  TRAN-
SACTIONAL  IMMUNITY. IN EITHER CASE, SUCH WITNESS RECEIVES SUCH IMMUNITY
unless:
  (a)   He OR SHE has  effectively  waived  such  immunity  pursuant  to
section 190.45; or
  (b)  Such evidence is not responsive to any inquiry and is gratuitous-
ly  given  or  volunteered  by the witness with knowledge that it is not
responsive[.] ; OR

records or other physical evidence  of  an  enterprise,  as  defined  in
subdivision  one  of  section 175.00 of the penal law, the production of
which is required by a subpoena duces tecum, and the  witness  does  not

  S  7. Paragraph (d) of subdivision 1 of section 210.20 of the criminal
procedure law is amended to read as follows:
  (d)  The defendant has TRANSACTIONAL immunity, AS DEFINED IN PARAGRAPH

nal action, OR (C) CLAIMS THAT EVIDENCE AS TO THE USE OF WHICH HE OR SHE
POSSESSES  IMMUNITY,  AS  DEFINED IN PARAGRAPH (B) OF SUBDIVISION ONE OF
SECTION 50.10 OF THIS CHAPTER, MAY BE OFFERED AGAINST HIM IN A  CRIMINAL
ACTION,  a  court  may,  under circumstances prescribed in this article,
order that such evidence be suppressed or excluded upon the ground  that
it:
  6.    Consists  of potential testimony regarding an observation of the
defendant either at the time or place of the commission of  the  offense
or upon some other occasion relevant to the case, which potential testi-
mony  would  not be admissible upon the prospective trial of such charge
owing to an improperly made previous identification of the defendant  by
the prospective witness[.]; OR
  7. Consists of information obtained by means of a pen register or trap
and  trace  device  installed  or used in violation of the provisions of

refusal to answer shall be subject to order of the court  in  which  the
proceeding  was  brought  in a manner and on such terms as the court may
deem just. If a proceeding is not brought within  ten  days,  notice  of
refusal shall thereupon be sent as provided herein.

PROCEEDING.  IF THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS FAILS TO PRODUCE A LIST OF ELIGI-
BLE HEARING OFFICERS, THE  CHIEF  ENFORCEMENT  COUNSEL  MAY  COMMENCE  A
SPECIAL PROCEEDING AS PROVIDED HEREIN IN ACCORDANCE WITH RECOMMENDATIONS

  S 14-200. LEGISLATIVE FINDINGS AND INTENT.  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT
REFORM OF NEW YORK STATE'S CAMPAIGN FINANCE SYSTEM IS CRUCIAL TO IMPROV-
ING PUBLIC CONFIDENCE IN THE STATE'S DEMOCRATIC PROCESSES AND CONTINUING
TO  ENSURE  A GOVERNMENT THAT IS ACCOUNTABLE TO ALL OF THE VOTERS OF THE
STATE REGARDLESS OF WEALTH OR POSITION. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS  THAT  NEW
YORK'S  CURRENT SYSTEM OF CAMPAIGN FINANCE, WITH ITS LARGE CONTRIBUTIONS
TO CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE AND PARTY COMMITTEES, HAS CREATED THE POTENTIAL
FOR AND THE APPEARANCE OF CORRUPTION.   THE  LEGISLATURE  FURTHER  FINDS
THAT,  WHETHER OR NOT THIS SYSTEM CREATES ACTUAL CORRUPTION, THE APPEAR-
ANCE OF SUCH CORRUPTION CAN GIVE RISE TO A DISTRUST  IN  GOVERNMENT  AND
CITIZEN  APATHY THAT UNDERMINE THE DEMOCRATIC OPERATION OF THE POLITICAL
PROCESS.
  THE LEGISLATURE ALSO FINDS THAT THE HIGH COST OF RUNNING FOR OFFICE IN
NEW YORK DISCOURAGES QUALIFIED CANDIDATES FROM RUNNING  FOR  OFFICE  AND
CREATES AN ELECTORAL SYSTEM THAT ENCOURAGES CANDIDATES TO SPEND TOO MUCH
TIME  RAISING MONEY RATHER THAN ATTENDING TO THE DUTIES OF THEIR OFFICE,
REPRESENTING THE NEEDS OF THEIR  CONSTITUENTS,  AND  COMMUNICATING  WITH
VOTERS.
  THE  LEGISLATURE AMENDS THIS CHAPTER CREATING A NEW TITLE TWO TO ARTI-
CLE FOURTEEN OF THIS CHAPTER TO REDUCE THE  POSSIBILITY  AND  APPEARANCE
THAT SPECIAL INTERESTS EXERCISE UNDUE INFLUENCE OVER STATE OFFICIALS; TO
INCREASE  THE ACTUAL AND APPARENT RESPONSIVENESS OF ELECTED OFFICIALS TO
ALL VOTERS; TO ENCOURAGE QUALIFIED CANDIDATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE; AND  TO
REDUCE THE PRESSURE ON CANDIDATES TO SPEND LARGE AMOUNTS OF TIME RAISING
LARGE CONTRIBUTIONS FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.
  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT THIS ARTICLE'S LIMITATIONS ON CONTRIBUTIONS
FURTHER   THE  GOVERNMENT'S  INTEREST  IN  REDUCING  REAL  AND  APPARENT
CORRUPTION AND IN BUILDING TRUST IN GOVERNMENT.  THE  LEGISLATURE  FINDS
THAT  THE  CONTRIBUTION LEVELS ARE SUFFICIENTLY HIGH TO ALLOW CANDIDATES
AND POLITICAL PARTIES TO RAISE ENOUGH MONEY TO RUN EFFECTIVE  CAMPAIGNS.
IN  ADDITION,  THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT GRADUATED CONTRIBUTION LIMITA-
TIONS REFLECT THE CAMPAIGN NEEDS OF CANDIDATES FOR DIFFERENT OFFICES.
  THE LEGISLATURE ALSO FINDS THAT THE SYSTEM OF VOLUNTARY PUBLIC FINANC-
ING FURTHERS THE GOVERNMENT'S INTEREST IN ENCOURAGING  QUALIFIED  CANDI-
DATES TO RUN FOR OFFICE. THE LEGISLATURE FINDS THAT THE VOLUNTARY PUBLIC
FUNDING  PROGRAM  WILL  ENLARGE  THE  PUBLIC DEBATE AND INCREASE PARTIC-
IPATION IN THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS. IN ADDITION,  THE  LEGISLATURE  FINDS
THAT  THE  VOLUNTARY  EXPENDITURE  LIMITATIONS AND MATCHING FUND PROGRAM
REDUCE THE BURDEN ON CANDIDATES AND OFFICEHOLDERS TO SPEND TIME  RAISING
MONEY FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.
  THEREFORE,  THE LEGISLATURE DECLARES THAT THESE AMENDMENTS FURTHER THE
IMPORTANT AND VALID  GOVERNMENT  INTERESTS  OF  REDUCING  VOTER  APATHY,
BUILDING  CONFIDENCE  IN GOVERNMENT, REDUCING THE REALITY AND APPEARANCE

S. 6355--B                         45                         A. 8555--B

OF CORRUPTION, AND ENCOURAGING QUALIFIED CANDIDATES TO RUN  FOR  OFFICE,
WHILE REDUCING CANDIDATES' AND OFFICEHOLDERS' FUNDRAISING BURDENS.

repayment bonds, notes or other obligations from the payment dates ther-
eof  to  the date of issue of the refunding or repayment bonds, notes or
other obligations and to  the  price  bid  including  estimated  accrued
interest  or  proceeds  received  by the corporation including estimated
accrued interest from the sale thereof.

for state university educational facilities  purposes  and  the  present

at by doubling the semi-annual interest rate (compounded  semi-annually)
necessary  to  discount the debt service payments on the refunding bonds
from the payment dates thereof to the date of  issue  of  the  refunding
bonds  to  the purchase price of the refunding bonds, including interest
accrued thereon prior to the issuance  thereof.  The  maturity  of  such

refunded  or  repaid,  shall  be  calculated  by utilizing the effective
interest rate of the refunding or repayment bonds, notes or other  obli-
gations, which shall be that rate arrived at by doubling the semi-annual
interest  rate (compounded semi-annually) necessary to discount the debt
service payments on the refunding or repayment  bonds,  notes  or  other
obligations  from  the payment dates thereof to the date of issue of the
refunding or repayment bonds, notes or  other  obligations  and  to  the
price  bid  including estimated accrued interest or proceeds received by
the authority including estimated accrued interest from the sale  there-
of.  Such  bonds,  other  than bonds issued to refund outstanding bonds,
shall be scheduled to mature over a  term  not  to  exceed  the  average
useful  life, as certified by the facilities development corporation, of
the projects for which the bonds are issued, and in any case  shall  not
exceed  thirty  years  and the maximum maturity of notes or any renewals
thereof shall not exceed five years from the date of the original  issue
of such notes. Notwithstanding the provisions of this section, the agen-
cy  shall have the power and is hereby authorized to issue mental health
services facilities improvement  bonds  and/or  mental  health  services
facilities  improvement  notes  to  refund  outstanding  mental  hygiene
improvement bonds authorized to be issued pursuant to the provisions  of
section  47-b of the private housing finance law and the amount of bonds
issued or outstanding for  such  purposes  shall  not  be  included  for
purposes  of  determining  the  amount  of bonds issued pursuant to this
section. The director of the budget shall allocate the aggregate princi-
pal authorized to be issued by the agency among  the  office  of  mental
health, office [of mental retardation and] FOR PEOPLE WITH developmental
disabilities, and the office of alcoholism and substance abuse services,
in  consultation with their respective commissioners to finance bondable
appropriations previously approved by the legislature.
